One day. One more day and our sojourn in the desert of summer is over, and we shall find sweet relief from our misery as Spurs take the field against Hearts. This also means that we will finally be able to bring back the best damn live commentary crew in the history of SB Nation, so wherever you watch the game I advise you to keep your virtual self firmly planted here. I can't wait for this game as Spurs continue King Edward I's legacy of hammering the Scots.  

And now the "news"

I now have complete faith in him and his decisions, and I will until next week when I inevitably change my mind.

Spanish Super Cup Preview, Barcelona HoldsA Slight Advantage-SB Nation Soccer

Spanish Supercup second leg, or as I call it "installment two of probably five meetings this season". They play each other all the time in cup play, I really think they need a new name for the game. Is something really "el clasico" the classic, if it happens this often? I say we change the name to "games people care about". Because it's really the only time I watch La Liga.

Manchester United To Offer IPO to Raise Funds-The Busby Babe

Singapore? They are going to be listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange? What was wrong with the London Stock Exchange? Too mainstream for you? Now I know a little bit about economics like this, or so I thought until I began to research the Singapore Stock Exchange. Stock exchanges are complicated, let's leave it at that. It makes my brain hurt.

John Obi Mikel Releases Statement On Father Kidnapping-We Ain't Got No History

It is complete shit that this sort of a thing happens. Prayers and thoughts go out to John Obi Mikel and his family.
